Training, events and other learning opportunities

We are keen to ensure that as Committee Members of a community building you are given the opportunity to improve and/or update your knowledge and skills.  Please find below information regarding Training and Networking Events available both through RAD and where appropriate, other providers.  

A RAD Village Hall and Community Building Training schedule is currently being prepared for 2024.  This will be published once finalised. 


Thursday 21st March 2024

RAD will be holding a Village Hall & Community Building event at Masson Mill near Matlock on 21st March. This is during Village Halls Week and will celebrate 100 years of the Village Hall and Community Building advisory service.  More details regarding agenda and booking will follow. 

Local networking and 'meet the expert' sessions - hosting venues wanted

A series of networking events are planned by Rona during 2024. These will be held around the county and will give Committee Members the opportunity to meet her and discuss issues, plans, etc. It will also be an opportunity to provide a forum for networking and group discussion.  

She is currently looking for host buildings in each of the Derbyshire districts to hold these events. If you can help please email [email protected]          

Events are available to anyone with a connection to or interest in running a community building. If your hall is part of the Affiliation Scheme you will qualify for discounts and offers.
